Mission Statement

The Oasis is a community-based non-profit organization reaching out to at-risk children and teens, ages 5 to 21. Our mission is to build mentoring relationships to support healthy development academically, emotionally, and in life skills. The Oasis provides a safe and positive alternative environment, nurturing diversity with all ethnic groups. Through a variety of programs inner city youth are encouraged and equipped to meet their goals and dreams and directed away from destructive lifestyles such as gangs and drugs.

Description

Our programs are geared to reach the un-churched child and teen in very practical ways. Many are from underprivileged homes. There are many children who live in the inner cities who don't always even get the basics of food and shelter. In 1999 the U.S. Bureau of the Census reported that 61.7% of African American, 85.1% of Latino, and 60.9% Caucasian in the 13th District of L.A. (which Hollywood is a part of) live 200% below poverty level. Students receiving free or reduced meals in schools are 90.3%.

Each program is geared to give hope and answer to break the poverty cycle.
